Probably

Engines: 299, 274, 320
Trucks: TL152, L167

In the old days prior to 1960 opening of E299/TL 152 on Utopia Pkwy that was a first due box for E274.

This is the Kissena Park area - there used to be a pony ride at 164 St and Rose Ave - as a little kid I always wanted to ride one but we didn't have money for things like that
